I’m a 61-year old Information Technology professional with a wife & 2 children. In 1989, I started running to train for the Honolulu Marathon. After successfully completing that 1990 race, I had enjoyed the people, training and the racing itself so much that I opted to continue running. I started training regularly with a local running group in 1991 and became a competitive masters runner. Since, I’ve run 110+ marathon/ultras and 900+ track, cross-country and road races across various cities and countries; 50 of my marathons were completed in under 3 hours; 100 under 3:20. I was inducted into the Calgary Marathon Hall of Fame in 2012 and have run the Calgary Marathon 21 times. To celebrate my 60th birthday and raise funds for MitoCanada, in 2018 I ran a sub-6:00 minute mile each day for over 60 consecutive days (“60 in 6”). MitoCanada is a major catalyst for and funder of research into mitochondrial disease.
RUNNING FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T is TEAMmito's mantra. TEAMmito is the grassroots awareness and fundraising program of MitoCanada. Our team is comprised of exceptional individuals from across the country who turn their sports passions into special events and athletic feats to benefit those living with mitochondrial disease.
2020 is MitoCanada's 10 year anniversary and we would LOVE to have you join our team! Our goal this year is to set TEN Guinness World Records to celebrate the progress we've made in the past 10 years and kick off the next 10 right! If YOU would like to join the GWR attempts or find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We are also attempting to have the most MITO participants at the Calgary Marathon this year as we ever have. TEAMmito welcomes all ages, paces and abilities! Running as part of TEAMmito comes with many perks. You get to race for a cause bigger than your personal goals, raise funds for an incredible charity and join the after party to re-live the race course events. Sign up today and remember to stop by our MitoCanada booth at the expo for your tech t-shirt!
